Exhibit: "Yorktown: People-Places-Products"

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 27-04-2013 19-10-2013 15 Exhibit: "Yorktown: People-Places-Products" Although highlighting Yorktown and its surrounding areas, this exhibit could be about any local town in the Hudson River valley. The dominant structure was the church; hotels and summer cabins abounded before accessibility through the nearby northern and eastern mountains. The coming of the railroad moved the center of town from Crompond to Yorktown Heights. Significant residents in town were painter Wallace Putnam, photographer Consuelo Kanaga, editor William Maxwell, Estee Lauder, Lydia Locke, and actress Ann Francis. Over 30 works by local artists will be featured. Folk artist Walter Liebrock, watercolorist Ann Bower, William Nelson, and other talented painters reproduce the look of the town and its surrounding area. The Sta-Hot electric iron was manufactured in Yorktown, and Clarence Birdseye patented his frozen food idea while living in town. There is now a fledgling winery. This is just a microcosm of the display about Yorktown and its surroundings, and should be a fun and nostalgic visit for all. There are also five permanent exhibit rooms, a gift shop, and research library to round out your visit. The exhibit is open April 27 through October 19. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=136409 Yorktown Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
